Productivity in construction hinges on the efficiency of three factors: equipment assets, staff and laborers, and building materials. For decades, these three pillars of productivity have been difficult for construction professionals to track and manage with transparency — resulting in a loss of productivity and profit across the industry. That’s about to change with T3, the Operating System for Construction.
EquipmentShare, one of the fastest-growing equipment rental companies in the nation, has launched T3, which is a suite of apps that help contractors and construction professionals digitize their operations for increased efficiency and productivity. The T3 platform features mobile and web apps that replace multiple software systems and paper-and-pen workflows to empower customers to manage their assets, people and materials all with one solution.
“T3 was built upon the foundation that was set by the EquipmentShare Track asset management solution, which primarily helped contractors monitor and control their fleet,” EquipmentShare President Willy Schlacks said. “The comprehensive T3 operating system helps contractors manage all aspects of their business by removing bottlenecks and streamlining workflows. Gone are the days of waiting 45 days for a credit card statement to understand material expenses or logging into a dozen systems to view mixed fleet information, manage staff schedules or connect tasks to invoices. T3 gives contractors unparalleled visibility into their operations so they can begin to build with control.”
T3 is powered by machine telematics data, EquipmentShare’s cloud-connected keypads and Bluetooth tracking nodes. Contractors can access T3 from their desktop computer or their mobile device. Within the T3 platform, they can access apps that digitize workflows and more.
Users of the T3 Fleet app can monitor their mixed fleet utilization and manage rentals from EquipmentShare or from outside vendors. T3 Time Cards allows supervisors to review and approve employee timesheets from anywhere, at any time, and connect work hours to projects for accurate job expense reporting. With T3 Analytics, users can build and run reports on various activities at the jobsite, such as machine hours, maintenance intervals and more. The T3 E-Logs app replaces pen-and-paper driver logs for improved compliance and safety. By digitizing everyday construction workflows, tasks and reports, T3 helps users save time, reduce resource waste, improve safety and security and increase total productivity and profitability.
“We like working with EquipmentShare because they have a vision to make the industry better and they want to partner with their customers in that pursuit,” said Patrick Leis, Vice President of Logistics Operations at JE Dunn Construction, an EquipmentShare customer. “They offer a smarter system that helps us better manage our equipment and rentals. T3 provides better visibility on the work started to the work completed, including record keeping and from a risk and safety management perspective. Their technology helps us check off multiple boxes.”
EquipmentShare’s equipment rental and retail customers gain access to T3 through their equipment rental reservation or retail equipment purchase. Contractors and individuals who own their fleet may also purchase a T3 subscription to manage any machine in their fleet, regardless of make, model or OEM.
